We have a First Birthday hello from Maisy looking really cute. Thanks Sue for letting me know all is well and that Maisy has had a wonderful first Birthday.
Hi Jane - a wonderful day celebrating Maisy turning 1! Absolutely love her to bits and she continues to make everyone smile. She's also a huge hit with other dog owners as she greets them with such enthusiasm every day.

Ysobel's pups are now over seven weeks old and on Wednesday they will be eight weeks old and will be microchipped and start their primary course of vaccinations. These are real teddy bears and want to be out and about now if not sleeping.
Things have been a little worrying this weekend with our Reggie not being well. Yesterday I noticed he was just not himself in the morning and took his temperature and it was okay, so thought I would keep an eye on him but he then drunk some water and brought it right back up which then prompted me to get him to the vets. He has not had any diarrhea.
At the vets it was decided that he should be x-rayed as he was showing obvious discomfort on palpation of his abdomen. The x-ray showed a round mass about 2 cm in width, so then on scanning it is thought to be an inflamed gallbladder. He has stayed in the vets since I took him yesterday morning and has been on intravenous fluids and antibiotics and anti inflammatories. I spoke to the vet midday today and not much improvement but tonight at 8 pm she rang to tell me he seems to of turned a corner and has eaten, wagging his tail and some how every time she leaves the room she comes back to find he has opened his pen door and is sitting by the door waiting for her. She said, "Reggie's a bit clever, I've never known any other dog able to undo these pens."
Bloods have been done showing liver is okay and kidneys. Reggie will be scanned again tomorrow to see if mass is reducing and if so I think we can presume it is the gallbladder inflamed. No sign of any stones in mass and if not reduced there is a possibilty it might be a foreign object, as Reggie does like chewing up things and small bouncey ball of our children's is unaccounted for. Reggie has had no bile in his vomiting or had a temperature or any jaundice, so not 100% sure at the moment if gallbladder yet.
One thing I've never had with a dog is a problem with the gallbladder, so new territory for me, so have asked the vet if this would anything to worry about with him being used as a breeding dog and she said, if it is the gallbladder inflamed this quickly and no stones it is most likely a bacterial infection not a genetic problem.
Reggie is a star and I'm sure he will soon be fighting fit again. This is the first time Reggie at nearly three has had any sort of illness, he has not even ever had an ear infection, which is pretty common place with Poodle or even ever a dodgy stomach.
Certainly there's a space here tonight where Reggie fills but he's in the best place for him at this time and lets hope he's home tomorrow. By the sounds of it, how he's opened the pen door they better not let him get his paws on any car keys, else he might come home on his own steam.lol. Reggie is a very smart dog !
Lastly a few photo's of some of the girls and a couple cute photo's of Charlie Titch and some nice ones of Smudge.
